“The will of the people will stand,” the organizers posted on Twitter. The date of the strike is still to be determined.

The announcement follows two New York City strikes from groups affected by Trump’s executive order temporarily banning immigrants and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries (Trump’s order was placed on a temporary hold on February 3).
On January 28, members of the NY Taxi Workers Alliance went on a one-hour strike in solidarity with protesters at JFK airport. Uber, however, was still servicing riders, which prompted the #DeleteUber hashtag that led to 200,000 deleted accounts, according to The Verge.
A week later, members of New York City’s Yemeni-American community closed hundreds of their markets and protested in Brooklyn.
Another group of grassroots organizers are planning a general strike on February 17 to protest Trump’s policies.
Business Insider has reached out to the Women’s March organizers for comment.
